I’ve tried to get something out live blogging posts for the past few years and have finally decided that they are worthless. In the past, I’ve even live-blogged events, trying desperately to offer value where I found none.
However, as I prepare to go to another tech conference, I’m wondering (aloud I suppose) if I’m the only one who finds the typical disjointed, rambling liveblogging posts are of any real value to offsite readers? I know that when I see an entry in my RSS that looks to be a diary of a tech event, I immediately ‘mark as read’ and move on.
What about you..? Is liveblogging worth the effort for the blogger? Is it a bore, or of value, to the reader?
